Netflix today screens its original movie Our Souls at Night, starring Robert Redford & Jane Fonda, playing a couple who find love unexpectedly later in life.
It’s fifty years since they played newlyweds in Barefoot in the Park. Also starring are Bruce Dern, Matthias Schoenaerts, Judy Greer and Iain Armitage.
Based on the best-selling novel written by Kent Haruf and adapted for the screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars), Our Souls at Night is set in Colorado and begins when Addie Moore (Jane Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbour, Louis Waters (Robert Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they’d been neighbours for decades, but had little contact. Their children live far away and they are all alone in their big houses. She seeks to establish a connection, and make the most of the rest of the time they have.
Friday Sept 29 on Netflix.
